Make Money Blogging Not By Being Scammed

If you have been flirting with the idea of making money from home, because you have seen or heard a lot of people talking about it and want to start doing the same, I encourage you first to read this post - so please keep reading and let me tell you why.

"Making money from home" sounds great doesn't it? Yes! It definitely does and it is totally true but it is not as easy as it seems to be. To cover all the bases I want to start with some of the most common questions that might be rolling through your mind.

How do I make money from home?
Where do I start?
How much money will I make?

I'm pretty sure there are a whole bunch of questions that you may have, but we're going to cover the most important things that a beginner like you must know in order to start making money like a pro. First of all, I want to tell you before we start, that there are some things you might already know, but I would like to remind that not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems.
There are many ways to make money online, but there are also many scammers trying to steal your money and personal information - BE CAREFUL! Scammers are everywhere and come to you in many forms - by mail. E-mail, telephone, door-to-door, and most currently... Over the internet.

Knowing the most infamous scams will help you become a good online money maker and reduce the chances of being scammed. i wouldn't be surprised(they're everywhere) if some of you have already experienced some of them. Here the top 5 infamous scams:

1. Chain Letters - These are pretty much just another type of undesirable spam in your inbox. They try to convince you to recopy the letter and then send it to everyone you know; they offer you good luck or money.

2. Business opportunities - These types of schemes we all have seen before. "Work-at-home - earning $100,000 in just one month" (Don't worry I'm from the internet).

3. Credit Repair - They guarantee you to help you fix your credit. But they generally just want your money.

4. Free goods - "Congratulations you have won a million dollars" " You have won a FREE laptop" (too good to be true).

5. Vacation prizes - "You have won a trip to the Bahamas - Congratulations" (Scheming Crafty Aggressive Malicious - Be $camsmart).

There are so many more to list. Hopefully, we'll talk about them in future updates. Now that I have refreshed you memory a little bit about scammers, I am going to give you a short explanation on how to work from home without being scammed.

Let's talk about the first question mentioned before - How do I make money from home?
You can make money blogging, one of the best ways to make money and be your own boss. (Assuming that you have a blog already)

CPC programs - (cost-per-click)
Google Adsense - basically they display ads on your blog according to its content.
Chitika - (I highly recommend Chitika they also provide CPL Cost-per-lead).

CPM ad networks - (Cost per thousand impressions also called cost per mile) some similar companies include:
Casale Media.

Instead of paying per click, they pay per the total number of impressions.

Where do I start?
You can start with blogger, Wordpress, Typepad, Livejournal, and I encourage you to start with Google Adsense first; once you have an understanding of what blogging is you can move to your own domain name.

How much money will I make?
Nobody can give you the exact answer. The earnings are based on the number of page impressions and clicks. So, the most visitors you get, the more you can expect to earn.
Therefore, I recommend that you buy a really good book, which is the one that helped me, start making money blogging. this book will take you from a beginner to a professional blogger.
